    Hi, My family and I will be on a five night cruise on the Dream, embarking June 1st. I was wondering if there will be a formal night. I'm getting my packing list in order and I don't want to pack more than I need to. Thank You!

    Hi there, Jessica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  With your sailing quickly approaching, I know the excitement is building for your upcoming vacation aboard the Disney Dream!  I am so thrilled for you and all the fun you will have onboard!  I haven’t had an opportunity to see the newest live show, ‘Beauty and the Beast’, but am certain it won’t disappoint!

    On a five-night sailing, you can expect to have 3 cruise casual nights, 1 pirate night and 1 dress-up night.  For dress-up night, think button-downs and pants for men and a nice dress for women.  Reserve the formal wear for your NEXT Disney Cruise Line vacation!  But, certainly do pack your pirate gear for the fun and exciting Pirate Night!  Or, consider a trip to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for a Pirates League makeover!  With pirate-themed activities and entertainment throughout the day, you won’t want to miss out!

    As you put together your packing list, be sure to add my two “must haves” when I head out to sea…Ziploc bags and clothespins!  I can assure you, you will find a use for these at some point during your sailing and you will be glad you had some stashed away!  Also, if this is your first Disney Cruise Line vacation, you may want to bring some lanyards to keep your Key to the World Card in!  They are available for purchase onboard in the gift shops, but if you have some at home, go ahead and bring them with you!

    Wishing you a wonderful adventure at sea with Captain Mickey where many magical memories will be made!

    Happy Sailing, Jessica!
